Who do they say we are?

When Jesus arrived in the villages of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “What are people saying about who the Son of Man is?”

They replied, “Some think he is John the Baptizer, some say Elijah, some Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”

He pressed them, “And how about you? Who do you say I am?”  (Matthew 16:13-15)

Jesus’ questions to the disciples are alive to us today in a world in which being a Christian is no longer “normal.” Who we are and what we do as followers of Jesus is often seen by the world very differently than we intend. We’ll explore what these questions mean for us and for the church today using some scenes from “Walk the Line,” the bio-pic about singer Johnny Cash.

We meet Friday, Aug. 22 @ 6:30 p.m. @ St. Luke Lutheran Church in Dublin (Rt. 313). We’ll be in the parlor, which is on the right as you come in the main entrance. We’ll start worship promptly at 7:30. It’s a pot-luck, and in addition to a main dish or side dish (dessert is covered) we need everyone to bring a beverage.

Please bring your offerings for the Quakertown Food Pantry — they are in serious need of food and/or funds to purchase food.
